    "This one great software program!"

    March 12, 2014  |   By kentman333

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    This program works like a charm as even if you normally use the uninstall feature that came with a software program that you want to remove, it leaves behind files in the registry. Revo gets ride of those registry files too that can slow down your computer and does it quickly.

    One thing to remember, Revo will run the particular software's program first to remove most files, then the software program will usually instruct you to restart your computer...don't restart it now, choose the restart later option. Revo then takes over and completes the rest of the job and removes the files that were left in the registry and other places that had been missed. When Revo is all done, then restart your computer.

    Cons

    None at all.

    Summary

    I really love this program.

    "Really beneficial Program"

    January 14, 2014  |   By Stephen137

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    Uninstalls a program fully. See summary

    Cons

    None so far.

    Summary

    I had a persistent problem, malware, attached to a browser. I tried everything, and I do mean everything, including Malware Pro, to no avail. I uninstalled and reinstalled the browser and it still contained the malware. I finally downloaded Revo Uninstaller trial version and ran a full, advanced uninstall. It took out every file, registry issue, etc. I downloaded the browser again and it was free of the persistent malware. Revo was the only thing that freed my PC of the malware. I may have to buy a copy to have around.

    "Absolutely in love with this program"

    January 6, 2014  |   By jbiafra

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    Cleaned malware programs that were not uninstalling the traditional way, and also double checked for fragments. My download did not come directly from CNET, so I can't speculate on the malware that other users are claiming to have gotten with this download. I did a quick scan with adaware after using this program and found 3 bad files, which may or may not have come with this program. I think that's a small price to pay for getting rid of the hijacking software I've been dealing with.

    Cons

    Just used the program a few minutes ago. The malware seems to be completely gone. No more pop ups. Malware no longer appears in add/remove programs list.

    Summary

    I downloaded some sketchy files and ended up with four malware programs that I've been struggling to remove for 3 days. The primary cause of my grief was this stupid gorilla price program that was requiring me to download an uninstaller from the very company that I was trying to get rid of. Searching how to remove gorilla price brought me to a download of the Revo Uninstaller, which quickly removed Gorilla Price, without giving me the Corrupted Files message that some other users are saying they got when trying to remove this program. I am very happy to be rid of gorilla price and the other three programs that were causing me grief. It is still too early to tell if the Revo Uninstaller got completely rid of the malware, but I haven't seen a pop up, and the malware is gone from my add/remove programs list. I used the free trial version, but I am very tempted to purchase the full version when my trial runs out. Wonderful program. A real life saver (knocks on wood).

    "Be patient, you have to wait until it is done."

    December 20, 2013  |   By ChuckieXChan

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    You have to use "custom install" unless you want a new tool bar and some oddball "helper app". I understand someone has to pay the bills, but just not me. At least not today.

    Cons

    I found myself not wanting to wait for things to finish. There were no rotating dials or blinking things to let me know it was working and not stalled.

    But it finished when it was ready to finish. I would like an indicator of some kind.

    I definitely recommend decaf when using this program.

    Summary

    Good program
    Need feedback indicator that it's working and not stalled
    They provided me with a "test" application that just showed up on my desktop - (LOL) "Arcade something" to uninstall! Cute... And uninstall it did!
    I hit the "hunter" button and nothing happened other than a temporary Icon that is gone now.
    But in the end if it does what it is supposed to do for free, then it is worth every penny. Really. How many programs does the normal user uninstall? I'm trying to solve a browser hang by doing a thorough uninstall. It's perfect for my uses.

    I say use it, and be thankful the writers give you free access.

    "Does the job"

    November 29, 2013  |   By sheba22

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    Sets a restore point automatically before anything else is done. You have 4 options for the extent of Remove. When the application's unintaller, Revco lets it go ahead and uninstall their way. Then Revco continues and you can delete (or not) the registry stragglers. Then you know that the uninstalled is complete. I use on any program I want to uninstall. I don't trust the program's uninstaller because there are almost always registry items left behind.

    Also I noticed that a tech support person also used Revco to uninstall files.

    Cons

    Can't think of any cons.

    Summary

    I think Revco is a great product (I use the free version) and would recommend it.
